* A 'sound sampling' of this track was given away with the January 1985 issue of a UK magazine called 'Electronic Soundmaker and Computer Music' (see below centre and right for images). Basically an expert in music technology explains how each individual sound on the track was generated and what instruments were used to create them, then the band demonstrates each sound for a few seconds.
